Saint Lucia is an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons, on its west coast. Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.
At just 43km long and 23km wide, it is more than possible to explore Saint Lucia in a short holiday. The north is more densely populated with the capital and main port of Castries and the tourist hub of Rodney Bay. The south is quieter and home to the bulk of Saint Lucia’s natural attractions: Soufrière volcano, the Pitons and an offshore nature reserve. The calm Caribbean Sea laps the western beaches; this side is more family friendly with few waves. The eastern shoreline is buffeted by Atlantic breezes, making it a haven for wind and kite surfers. Car hire is easy, while taxis across the island have fixed point-to-point fares.

Alison and Michael Richings originate from the U.K. (Wirral) but have lived in St.Lucia since 1983.
They have owned and operated many restaurants and hotels, both in the UK and the Caribbean. In 1988 they purchased “San Antoine Restaurant” and during their 13 years of ownership San Antoine gained an international reputation for fine cuisine and service.
In 1993, they decided to develop a “beach bar” with a more relaxed an informal atmosphere, and on 7th December 1993, Spinnakers Beach Bar & Restaurant opened.
Nestling into the warm golden sands of Reduit Beach (Rodney Bay), Spinnakers is now known by thousands of guests plus yachtsmen and women from all over the world!
By day, we serve a variety of dishes from quick snacks (for those wishing to get back on the beach!) to a mega lobster salad! A selection of the daily menu is listed on our “lunch menu” page.
Once the sun sets in front of our deck – a great sundowner spot, we start serving our evening menu.
As the night darkens, the romantic atmosphere and ambience that only Spinnakers can offer, surrounds you.

First opened in January 2015 we built a great reputation before a tragic fire destroyed the original building in early 2016. After months of hard work plus a total upgrade we opened our new location in May 2016 which has gone from strength to strength. The restaurant has panoramic views over the bay from our beautiful rooftop terrace. Expect cool breeze day and night in a lovely relaxed atmosphere serving international cuisine together with warm Saint Lucian customer service.

Formerly branded as Tapas On The Bay, Lil’ Chef takes the “little dishes from around the world” that Tapas is known for, and adds prime seafood and all day breakfast. Tucked into a breezy corner of Rodney Bay marina lagoon, where a steady breeze blows across the calm waters and cools its spacious covered deck, the long, Soufriere stone clad bar is perfect for enjoying both lunch or dinner, and the secluded location makes Lil’ Chef a great place to relax and chill out.
Taking traditional tapas as a base, Chef Rosie incorporates Caribbean and international influences, creating innovative new bite-sized dishes with local ingredients and flavours, serving them on sharing platters for a very social eating experience. There are also plenty of delicious seafood entrees and yummy desserts to round out the menu. Throw in some excellent wines, different types of sangria and boozy cocktails by the jug, and Lil’ Chef could be your next favourite dining spot in Saint Lucia.
Volcanic in origin, Saint Lucia is one of the many small islands that comprise the Caribbean’s Windward Islands. Covering a total land area of 617 sq.km, St. Lucia’s landscape is dominated by dense jungle and a central ridge of forested mountains.
St. Lucia is known around the world for the striking twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton on its south western coast. The positions of these peaks have been marked on the physical map of St. Lucia above.
The island’s highest peak, Mount Gimie is positioned in the South-Central mountain range and rises to 958m (3,143 ft) above sea level. The island is drained by dozens of small rivers that flow to the sea; the largest ones include the Canelles, Cul de Sac, Mabouya and Soufriere. The island is ringed by miles of sandy beaches, as well as many small bays.
Saint Lucia is divided into 11 districts/quarters. In alphabetical order, the districts are: Anse-la-Raye, Canaries, Castries, Choiseul, Dauphin, Dennery, Gros-Islet, Laborie, Micoud, Soufriere and Vieux-Fort.
Located on a flood gate that has been built on reclaimed land in the north-western coast of the island country is Castries – the capital and the largest city of Saint Lucia. Castries is the major port and a landlocked deep water harbour of Saint Lucia
